Pledge in honor of Chex, the sea turtle that ate a balloon
Chex is a green sea turtle that was rescued after eating a balloon in the ocean. This little sea turtle was found floating and struggling to dive. Sea turtles often mistake plastic bags, balloons and other trash for jellyfish or squid. Once sea turtles start swallowing something they are unable to stop and may become sick like Chex or even die after ingesting marine debris. Fortunately, Chex was rescued, rehabilitated and released, but many other marine animals are not so lucky.
